According to Yasmin, this ayah says with hardship comes ease. the ease is at the same time as the hardship. With hardship, Allah gives us the strength and patience to bear it."Verily, with hardship comes ease"Quran, 94:5
I am not really sure if I can understand this fully but as I take time to reflect on each painful episodes of my life, I do agree that for each mishaps I always came up stronger and more drawn to religion.
And according to Yasmin, there is one thing that we should understand in order to not be so consumed over each agony and that is
"The nature of this dunya is it not perfect. It is not perfectly good not it is perfectly bad"My mistake was I let one bad moment to define me, to rule the way I look at life. I realise now that I should see every bad episodes as a part of this life, that I should not linger over unhappy moments, that there's bad and good things that happen to me is how the world runs.
And ultimately, Everything Shall Pass
"What is taken by Allah is never lost"Yasmin Mogahed
"Prophet Muhammad has said : You will never give up a thing for the sake of Allah but that Allah will replace it for you with something that is better for you that it"Ahmad
These statements make it clear that sometimes Allah takes something from us because the loss of that particular thing is something that is good for us." But it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not"Quran, 2:216
I have lost a lot of things throughout my entire life and yes, if I see those loss in a positive view, I do feel each loss is a blessing in disguise. It maybe hard for me to accept and bear with the pain, but time heals, prayer heals and now I surrender my heart to Allah. May he saves me for any further pain and may He rewards those pain with something better-Jannah
